Lessons learned

I am normally a person with no patients. I can not even spell the word right. "Pashents". LOL. Since starting this book Wreck this journal, I have learned some.

I started back in July and I am still working on this book. Both wrecking and recreating. This stone wall was the biggest challenge for me. Sure it was simple enough. But time consuming. I did a few rows and put it up. And continued that way. I normally need thing done in a day or 2. This took a couple of weeks off and on. Where the sun set page took an hour at the most. And I have learned. Some people took this book for a joy ride like a roller coaster.
The wreckage was fun and powerful. Where Sure I spilled the coffee on this page. But I was not satisfied with that. I had to go back and add a table cloth then go back add coffee grounds.

Then I used Mod podge to seal it. And look no patients. I closed the book too soon and had to rip it apart. So Yea. More wreckage.

My fire page before and after. Yes I added bandages.

This page is from pouring honey on it in last weeks video.
I added toilet paper to the honey then painted.
So for me I wreck and re Wreck.
Please visit Wrecking sisters re-united to see all the fun others are having this week.

You are so creative - your brick wall looks like multicoloured marshmallows squished into rectangles! LOL!

Great wrecking!
Btw: Have you noticed the new Keri Smith book: "This is not a book"?
I bought it 2 days ago and it seems to be much fun.

Ah yes and Grammy, important: please tell me your favorite colors for the bag for "One tribe-one heart", because I've started knitting now.
Thanks! Enjoy your Sunday!

It's amazing what we all learned from this crazy little book, and are still learning.

Yes, it looks like you actually have more pacience, pachuns, patcens ??? than you thought!


You are a hoot, and a wildwoman too.

The chicken takes after his mother I think (in the newer most recent post here). He is a very playful and funny bird, always thinking outside the box.

And the babies are beautiful.
